The new car market is awash with SUVs, with seemingly every manufacturer wanting to get a piece of the action. They’re popular for a reason – a high driving position, beefier suspension and spacious interiors all go towards creating a relaxing driving experience.
We’ve put together a list of SUVs that are among the comfiest currently on offer. Remember you can put any of these cars into our car configurator to get the best possible offers from the UK’s leading dealers.
5. Mazda CX-5
Mazda’s CX-5 is a smart looking, fun to drive SUV. Considering its price, it’s also one of the most comfortable – while the driver gets a sporty feel uncommon to SUVs, the passengers are carried in sublime comfort. The roomy interior adds to the CX-5’s stress-free feel and ensures all passengers are as comfortable as possible.
The CX-5’s suspension manages to soak up bumps, whether at slow or high speed. It’s particularly good at managing potholes and uneven road surfaces, making it excellent for motorway cruising.
Our Mazda CX-5 configurator will help you find the best possible deals if you think it’s the car for you.
4. Nissan Qashqai
In some ways, the Nissan Qashqai is like any other SUV but, once you step inside and get on the move all that changes – critics claim the ride quality is among the best in class. This is thanks to a special computer that adjusts the chassis to provide the best possible ride over any surface. That means, if you hit a pothole, the system will automatically adjust each of the car’s brakes to keep the car as stable and as level as possible.
Combine this with the spacious, quiet cabin, it doesn’t matter how many passengers you have on board – it’s one of the most comfortable SUVs in its price range.

3. Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 offers a high quality, well-soundproofed interior that ensures there’s minimal noise in the cabin. Its suspension is perfectly set up for absorbing all those nasty bumps, too. Even with bigger wheels, it refuses to crash about like some SUV’s would.
There’s more good news too – it’s well-known that Volvo’s seats are among the most comfortable around. The XC90’s seats provide all the adjustment and support you’d ever want.
Our Volvo XC90 configurator will find the best deals from the UK’s best Volvo dealers.
2. Land Rover Discovery
Gone are the days when the Land Rover Discovery was a rough and ready off-roader – the latest offering can carry up to seven people in sublime comfort. You’d struggle to find a seven-seater that’s roomier – even the rear-most seats get more headroom than the front seats of some rival SUVs.
It might not be the most agile car around the corners, but the resulting ride quality is worth it. Land Rover’s air suspension makes light work of almost all conditions. While most SUVs have a bumpy ride when they go off-road, the Discovery adapts accordingly to keep everyone on board as comfortable as possible.

1. Range Rover
Some might call this an unimaginative choice, but it’s number one for a reason – the Range Rover retains all the Land Rover’s off-road ability, but takes the experience to a truly opulent level. Its interior exceeds some luxury saloons with fine materials used all-round, while your passengers are cosseted by the leather upholstery. On the road, it seemingly soaks up any potholes or bumps and leaves the occupants none-the-wiser.
Off-road it’s even more impressive – clever technology adapts the suspension to all kinds of conditions. The aim of this is to make the occupants unaware of whatever trying surface lays beneath their feet.
Our Range Rover configurator can help you save money on your new car, direct from the UK’s best Land Rover dealers.
